Today: Snacks for lunch.

My favorite meals are snacks.  A little of this, a little of that.  While I’ll (almost) never say no to chocolate, I tend to prefer salty over sweet.

I was finishing up my grocery shopping a few months ago when I spotted Pearls Olives to Go on the shelf.  I love green olives, and thought these little cups would be the perfect salty addition to workday lunches.  The mess-free, single-serve cups are easy to open and don’t contain any liquid, making them perfect for snacking on the go.  

Just a couple days later, my friends at Sweat Pink/Fit Approach reached out to see if I would be interested in reviewing the product.  I had already whipped through the first package I bought, so saying ‘yes’ was a no-brainer.  Pearls Olives to Go are gluten-free, dairy-free, sugar-free, cholesterol-free, vegan and contain no trans-fats or GMOs.  Most importantly (kind of): they’re really, really good.

Snacks for Lunch

I’ve been pairing a cup of Olives to Go with some of my other favorite lunchtime snacks to round out the meal.  A few standbys:

  • Almonds, plain or flavored (Current obsession: Blue Diamond Honey Dijon)
  • Berries
  • KIND bars
  • Roasted chickpeas
  • Simple Caprese salad
  • Cheese (duh)
  • Hummus
  • Cut vegetables: peppers, carrots, cucumbers and snap peas
  • Baked or roasted sweet potatoes

For those of you in Boston, you’ll find a coupon for Pearls Olives to Go in the Globe, Herald and other area newspapers on Sunday, May 3rd.  Pearls Olives to Go can be purchased locally at Shaws and Demoulas/Market Basket, and at many nationwide retailers including Target.

As a Sweat Pink Ambassador, I received product and compensation for this post.  Thoughts, opinions and snackiness are all my own.  As always, I am grateful for the opportunity to partner with brands I love.  And I appreciate your continued support.  For real.
